I'm Madison I have MVD which means I have a murmur and my valve is leaking. The only way to fix my leaky valve is with life saving mitral valve surgery, which unfortunately is very expensive for me and my mommy to get! Please help me fix my leaky valve and get back to everyday life!
Mital Valve Disease or MVD is a dangerous, deadly disease and that is why it is so urgent to get surgery. This condition also affects people.
Madison has Mitral Valve Disease which means that the valves in her heart do not close properly. The result is a gap where the blood that should go down to circulate regurgitates or comes back up. This causes enlargement and distortion of the heart. There is no medication for this condition. Only Mitral Valve Repair surgery can correct the valve issue and return the heart to almost normal.
This surgery is a specialty done only by a couple of surgeons in the world. Madison will be seeing Dr. Masami Uechi. Dr. Masami Uechi is a surgeon who specializes in cases such as Madison's. All of the the money raised here, with your help, will be going towards Madison's surgery.
This surgery will save my Madison's life. She will be able to run, sleep and play normally. It will give her many more years with her mommy who loves her so very much.
It would mean everything to her family to be able to give Madison her much needed gift of life saving surgery and with it a chance to live and be a happy and healthy puppy again!
